But don’t get me wrong, I had a blast. I have some video clips, a couple of photos (not many come to think of it), and tons of business cards, but with such a wonky connection here in the room, it’s not worth even trying to get any of it up. So instead, I thought I’d just post a little something while I wait for my shuttle back to Oakland.
I really can’t wait to dig into my pile of biz cards and start checking out those new sites. I met some awesome people that I know I’ll be keeping in touch with: Clair, Erica, Jennifer & Heather to start with (no blog links right now, but I believe I mentioned them in the previous post…dunno right now). And it was great to finally get a moment to chat with Sizzle over champagne in Macy’s!
I’ll go into the pros and cons of the event itself in another post. The things that were right, were so spot on. The things that need some rethinking and improvement would make the event even better still. But since I don’t won’t anyone to get offended or bothered (so much work goes into planning these sort of events), I don’t want to write it up on the fly. Make sense.
Speaking of Macy’s, that was one helluva party. We had private areas on four floors: purses, shoes, lingerie and a “club” in furniture. We had wine, champagne, new Starbucks protein drinks, plenty of yummy appetizers and tasty macaroons. We had contests to enter (which was how I won a new Lacoste bag – and of course, they have some flashy, flash site and I can’t find the damn bag!) and samples to pick up. Then we ended up lounging around the living room sets just munching on food and drinking good wine from Oops. Of course, eventually, the crowds and the music got to be too much and well, now I don’t have much of a voice. Oh well, it happens right?
Okay, time to get downstairs and wait for my shuttle. I should be fine with my bags. All my clothes are in a carryon size bag that I’m checking and all my swag is in my actual suitcase. Here’s hoping I’m not exceeding the 50 pound limit this way.
Catch you on the flip side!
